In recent years the Berea District in Ohio have been on a mission to change ‘local’ into ‘global’. This presentation will share the steps taken to move one high school and a district toward true collaboration. The journey of starting small and growing over time will be addressed as specific examples of technology integration and collaboration are shared. In addition, participants will gain practical strategies, learn more about resources, and take away a deeper understanding of how to connect and collaborate within and beyond their own learning environment.
